A1 It stands for "introverted sensate with extraverted thinking." At least, that's one bit of information one could derive from the acronym. -- Michael Pavia
A2 Introverted sensate with extroverted thinking. In socionics the p (j)designates that the irrational (rational) functions, S or N (T or F) are dominant, i.e. in first position. The I or E dictates the introverted or extraverted character of the dominant function. For example ISTp is introverted sensing with extraverted thinking; by contrast, ENFj is extraverted feeling with introverted intuition. -- Anonymous
